Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto was electric at the plate in Game 7 on Wednesday, working long at-bats and driving the ball around the field. On top of his two hits, he rocketed one down the right field line that was pocketed by Ryan Zimmerman. He also worked a seventh-inning walk that led to the Howie Kendrick go-ahead home run. Sotocontinues to impress at just 21 years old and may be the most promising prospect in baseball. Next year is going to be fun to watch.
Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto hit a towering, majestic home run in the fifth inning of the Nationals 7-2 win over the Astros in Game 6 of the World Series. With the game tied 2-2, Soto sent a pitch into the upper deck and the Nationals never looked back. The Astros have thrown their best at Washington the last two games and Soto has taken both Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander deep. After a disappointing NLCS offensively, Soto is slashing .304/.407/.783 with two doubles, three home runs and six runs batted in through 23 World Series at-bats. Soto and the Nationals will put it all on the line against the Astros Zack Greinke in Game 7 on Wednesday.
It was a sad game for the Nationals, who never held the lead and had to deal with the best pitcher in baseball for seven innings. Soto certainly did his job, leading off the second inning with a single and hitting a home run in the seventh. The rest of the order struggled and only Howie Kendrick got a hit. The Nationals go to Houston down 3-2 and need to get their bats going if they want any chance.
